Description of Visit to Akumal and snorkel with turtles and cenoteLet's go on a tour across the natural spots of the Riviera Maya, heading towards the Centro Ecológico Akumal. This tour lasts 4 hours, in which you could spot sea turtles at their natural environment.
After setting off from Playa del Carmen we will head to a cenote in the Mayan jungle, where we will have our first stop. It is located at the Xibalba Natural Park and it was very important in the ancient Mayan Civilization, since cenotes were considered sacred places because of the mystery that its caverns hold. The shamans, chiefs of the communities, hosted rituals on them. In this cenote, we will spend half an hour swimming and snorkeling.
